Wake Falls To Maryland 75-62

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- Dez Wells scored 14 of his 21 points in the second half and Maryland beat pesky Wake Forest 75-62 on Thursday night in the first round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

Alex Len and Seth Allen added 11 points for the seventh-seeded Terrapins (21-11).

They struggled for about 30 minutes against a Wake Forest team they previously beat twice by a combined 36 points.

But they held the Demon Deacons without a field goal for a critical 8 1/2-minute stretch while using a late 24-8 run to pull away for their seventh straight win in the series. Maryland will face No. 2 Duke, the tournament's second seed, in the quarterfinals Friday night.

C.J. Harris scored 19 points and Devin Thomas added 14 for the 10th-seeded Demon Deacons (13-18). They ended their season by losing 10 of 13 and were denied their first ACC tournament win since 2007.
